Republicans feel incubment Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley is vulnerable since his support is under 50 percent, but his Republican challenger, Monica Wehby, has had a rough start with reports on domestic incidents with an ex-husband and ex-boyfriend.

 

Republicans are looking to expand their base in their attempt to win the Senate in November.

 

But Senator Jeff Merkley feels Oregon voters won't support a candidate that doesn't make herself accessible to the media.

 

"I think Oregonians need to hear from candidates for office about how they feel on a range of issues.  Candidates should not get away with not offfering specifics and taking any questions."
